Passport Services

The Moline Public Library is an authorized United States Passport Acceptance Facility and accepts passport applications on behalf of the U. S. Department of State.

We offer processing for:

  • First-time applicants
  • Applicants that were under 16 years of age when their most recent passport was issued
  • Applicants whose most recent passport has been expired for more than 5 years

Those eligible to use the DS-82 Passport Renewal form do not need to go to an acceptance facility to process their application.

We are not a Regional Passport Agency and do not provide physical passports on site.

Passport Applicants

All applicants and relevant parties must be present during the application process.

Both parents and children must be present for all minor applications (under age 16). If one parent cannot be present, you must submit a Parent Consent Form (DS-3053), completed with a notarized signature from the non-applying parent/guardian, and a copy of front and back of the non-applying parent's ID (it should be the same ID that they showed the notary).

Passport Photos

You can now get passport photos at the library.

Passport applicants are still welcome to bring in photos taken elsewhere but can also get their picture taken during their scheduled passport application appointment. We can also take photos for those that are renewing their passports themselves, but they will still need to make an appointment ahead of time to ensure that staff is available to take their picture. To schedule an appointment stop by the 2nd floor reference desk or call (309) 524-2470. Photos cost $10 per person.   

Hours of Service

Passport service is offered by appointment only. Open appointment times are dependent upon staff availability and the library's schedule. Passport Agents reserve the right to stop accepting applications if the application would continue past closing or is in conflict with another appointment or library event. Stop by the 2nd floor reference desk or call (309) 524-2470 to schedule an appointment.
